10:07 pm
such a debt problem is not because americans are not paying enough in taxes, but because washington spends too much. the situation has only gotten worse after the obama administration in his if the two years ins on, discretionary spending is sky rocketed by 84%, including the failed stimulous, with spending reaching 25% of the nation's economic output. we haven't seen spending levels this high since world war ii. >> reporter: republican house speaker john boehnerel to the president repeatedly he didn't have the votes to pass a debt reduction package in the house, including tax hikes. the house republicans are insisting any increase in the debt ceiling is matched with equal or more spending cuts. in washington, molly hennenberg, fox news. joining me now for an in- depth look at what this means to you and me is political editor john gizzy. thanks for joining us, john. >> thank you for having me, will. it's a pleasure. >> president obama held five
10:08 pm
days of meetings with congressional leaders proposing basically three options. deficit cuts of 4 trillion, 2 trillion, and 1.2 trillion. you would agree that none appear to be gaping much traction at this point. >> none appear to be gaping traction, will, because -- gaining traction, will, because the president still insists on what he calls revenues, which is another worry, a off perform for an increase in taxes. republicans are just not going to go down that road. in 1982, president reagan agreed to cuts when he signed the tax equity and fiscal responsibility act and, as he later wrote, he regretted it because he got more of the increases in fees and spending, he never got a single cut out of congress. >> along those lines, john and in his weekly radio address and internet address, the president said the wealthier must pay their share and he's appealing for public support. senator orrin hatch said the solution is in the in a
10:09 pm
spinning crisis to increase taxes, so both parties really opposed on this one. >> and they're opposed to it, but i think the president is going to realize just before his 50th birthday when the all- important debt ceiling vote comes, that he, it will be easier for him to give in to get the cuts he wants put entitlements on the table with no taxes at all. and that was an option he went for back on december 7th. when he finally decided to extend lower taxes for all americans, not just some of them, and he didn't like it but he went along with it. i think in the end, he realizes that he ask not want to be responsible for extending the debt ceiling crisis right before his birthday and, i think, he will ask for cuts but with no taxes. >> the house republicans are prepared in this coming week to vote on allowing the increase in the government spending through 2012, as long as
10:10 pm
congress passes a balanced budget and a constitutional amendment that requires a balanced budget is that likely? >> i have a feeling that they're going to get a lot of votes for it, probably more votes than ever before. remember, they need 290 votes in the house to get that -- get that to the states. all 2 port republicans are in favor of it. i'm not sure they'll get the democratic votes similarly in the senate. all 47 republican senators favor the balance budget amendment, but they need 2/3, 67 to send it to the state. they will make a strong statement and do well. i'm not sure they can do it and that is another thing. the president repeatedly uses strong language to condemn something that is near and dear to republican hearts and will be in a trial 1. >> yup. >> a balanced budget amendment, something every state except vermont has. >> well, you can see why the parties are on opposite ends of the spectrum here. i think i'm out of time, john
